The global market for Position Sensors is projected to reach US$12.8 billion by 2024, driven by the growing indispensability of sensing, actuation and control in designing smart electronic systems and in enabling intelligent machine functions such as predictive and adaptive autonomous decision making which represents the ultimate design goal of automated systems. The market also stands to benefit from the technology developments in programmable linear position sensors, magnetic position sensors, inductive non-contact position sensors and potentiometers. The emerging field of industrial and service robotics is forecast to catalyze applications requiring “positional” feedback”. The need for measuring linear motion of pistons will drive demand in pneumatic and hydraulic applications. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market, led by factors such as growing trend of automotive electronification and the resulting increase in the average number of position sensors used per car; development of smart industrial infrastructure and the opening of new opportunities in robotics, machine tools, motion control and other industrial automation solutions. Also driving growth is the strong demand for smart features and functions among the massive base of well penetrated smartphone users in the region and the resulting increase in the use of position sensors, magnetometer and orientation sensors in smartphones.
